Paul Allender


I've been in the music industry for over 20 years as a professional. I have written and played on 12 plus albums, most of these i was the majority song writer, composer and arranger, most of my work was over the many years in Cradle of Filth. An entry in the British Guinness book of records, I've been Grammy nominated and as well as having my own PRS guitar line out. I've done around 12 plus world tours, which i worked very closely with management, labels and merch companies. I have two bands, DiAmorte and White Empress. WE will surface soon once DiAmorte is up and running. I have started a mentoring program for up and coming bands to make money from what they do best, this is called Era Horrificus Productions. I also started a group called Metal / Rock Musicians Unite to help musicians interact and find members. I have been asked a lot if i know musicians for bands etc so hence this group.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is the life in your veins. There's no such thing as a part time musician. Your either in or out and if your in, its for life.

What is your music dream?

Already lived it and I'm still living it.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Lol you wouldn't want to know!!

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Iron Maidens the Trooper

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I don't really have any because I have played with everyone I have grown up listening too.

What inspires you to make music?

My dark and twisted soul. I love horror and this helps me write really dark music.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

I want the listener to be scared. I want to have the same reaction a horror movies has on people.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Its great. Looking at the audience and how shocked they are is what its all about.
